Overview

About the property

Contemporary & Edwardian 4 bedroom cottage close to the beach, in the New Forest

Wilson Cottage is a contemporary modern cottage, with 4 bedrooms and large open plan living spaces, where families or friends can enjoy each others company while located well to explore the South West of the New Forest or the Coastal areas alike. The beaches at Highcliffe are just a mile away, and the New Forest National Park is half a mile away. This cottage is easily accessible by rail or car alike, and either will take you in to Bournemouth or further along the Dorset Coast.

Wilson Cottage is located at the south west corner of the New Forest, just a mile from the beautiful beaches at Highcliffe and only half a mile from the New Forest National park itself. Chewton common is close by, as is the wonderful spa, restaurant and small golf course at the well known Chewton Glen Hotel. As well as the forest and the beaches virtually on your doorstep, Christchurch and Bournemouth are just a short direct drive from this New Forest Cottage.

Wilson Cottage owes its name to Richard Wilson, Victor Meldrew in ‘One Foot in the Grave’, which was filmed here. Victor Meldrew’s house was located just around the corner, and this cottage is featured in the 1991 One Foot in The Grave Christmas Special, covered in snow.

During the extensive restoration and refurbishment works the whole roof was removed, along with many interior walls, the back wall taken down and the house extended on both floors, doubling the floorspace on the ground floor, meanwhile the front elevation was restored to it’s former glory, wooden sliding sash windows reinstated and the whole exterior repointed as well as a new roof built. The contemporary design of the rebuild and extension is reflected throughout the interiors, with large open plan spaces, full width sliding/folding doors to the garden, contemporary open fireplace and reclaimed timber floorboards throughout.

Walkford is a small village, with a couple of pubs within a few hundred yards in either direction, and a good convenience store at the end of the road. Highcliffe is within easy walking distance, where you’ll find a good selection of restaurants, including in particular an excellent Thai restaurant run by a husband and wife chef and waitress team. It is small though – so be careful to book especially if it is for a large group. There is a top quality chinese takeaway next door to the Thai restaurant too, and several other places to eat, as well as a handful of pubs, tea rooms, coffee shops, supermarket, antique shops and a kayak and surf shop. Just beyond the main street you’ll come to the cliff top and sandy beach, where there’s a quality cafe/bar/ restaurant open in the daytime and evening with fantastic views.

Wilson cottage is the perfect base to discover the south west New Forest or venture further along the Dorset coast for a day, perhaps taking in Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door or Corfe Castle.

The kitchen/dining/living space has plenty of space for a family group to dine all together at the table. Theres a cosy central fireplace for winter and the full width sliding folding doors accessing the large deck are wonderful when the weather turns warmer.

At one end of the room is the kitchen, which has fitted units with silestone granite worksurfaces and a freestanding Ikea Udden stainless steel kitchen unit providing ample worksurfaces and storage. There is a wide range cooker with a single very large oven, a built-in stainless steel american fridge freezer and a freestanding fridge/freezer, integrated dishwasher and washer/dryer. The base and wall units house all the cooking and dining equipment needed for your break. The purpose designed kitchen and dining arrangement here makes Wilson Cottage a wonderful cottage for adding a chef-catered meal for a special evening in, with no washing up to do, no tables to set, or taxis to arrange home, as you’re already there!

The lounge space at the other end has sliding/ folding doors to the deck, and a contemporary fireplace, with large settees facing each other so everyone can socialise and relax in comfort. There’s a television with DVD, and a radio / CD player.

There are four bedrooms at this large cottage, Three are double rooms, one of which can also be set up as 2 single beds, and the fourth bedroom is a bunkbed room which has full sized adult beds. There’s some flexibility for groups whose requirements differ slightly. The two larger front bedrooms each have an original fireplace a pleasant street view, one is on the on the ground floor. The two smaller back bedrooms have surprizingly far reaching views across the gardens behind, one of these has the bunk beds, one has a double bed and also includes a desk.

The modern bathroom has a double ended bath with a shower over, heated towel rail, wc and basin. Downstairs, the cloakroom has a wc and basin.
